Tea House and Coffee for Others

This was one of Merkel and Myrtle's more peculiar dining experiences. This quaintly named tea house is at 255 Waymouth Street opposite Waymouth Café. The pair were the only patrons for lunch and an oriental lady met and ushered them to their table. The small Café had and array of brick-a-brack for sale, and odd combinations of decoration. There was a large range of tea for sale. While there was a reasonably long menu of Asian meals the couple were directed to the meals their hostess wished to cook. The fried tofu "vegetarian chicken" and fish was unfamiliar to Merkel and Myrtle but they suffered no ill-effects from consuming it.

The hot chocolate cost $3.20 and came in a surprisingly elegant tall glass with a handle. The drink was finished with a creamy froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The milk chocolate flavour could have been richer but was quite passable.
